Stay-Cation Day Three and Four

 So Day 3 was the "boring" day.  We went to the library.  The kids weren't super excited about it, but they knew we were bowling the next day, so they didn't complain.
 Obviously you aren't seeing any pictures of the library...I should have taken at least one, but as you can see...I'm a slacker!!!
 I did, however, take plenty of pictures of bowling to make up for it.  You're welcome.
 Sadly, all the pictures are with my cell phone, so they aren't the greatest.  But at least the memory is recorded in history.
 This is the first time we have ever taken our kids bowling.  They were so excited!
 Finding shoes that fit everyone took about 30 minutes...too big, too small, can't get them on, can't tie shoe laces..Luckily the people before us had kids, or were wimps, because our lane was stocked with light kids balls.
 One nice thing about having 6 kids (I guess I should say, one of the million nice things...) is that you can bowl only one game and it takes forever!!!  Everyone felt like we were bowling for a long time, and it was only one game.

 Mark's smug/gloating face after two strikes...punk.:)
Wyatt loved the fan by the balls.  
Bowling was a hit.  The whole family had a blast!

Stay-Cation Day Two

Our outing today was to the theater to see Mr. Peabody and Sherman.  It was cute.  The kids all loved it.

Stay-cation Day One and a Half

 We went to Orange Leaf Monday night after FHE.  Do you notice the trend in all these pictures???

Yes, we all LOVE ice cream!

Stay-cation Day One

Our first excursion was to a strawberry farm. 
 I was shocked at how much fun the kids had.
 "These are best strawberries I've ever eaten!"
 "This is the coolest place in the whole world."
 "Can we come back every year mom?  Please!!!"
 We had fun going through the farmers market after collecting strawberries.

 We bought some yummy kettle corn.  

 Everyone ate so much popcorn and so many strawberries on the way home that they all had tummy-aches.
 Then we came home and made freezer jam.
 It was a surprising hit.  And now the kids are excited to eat PB&J with their new jam...not just Nutella!

Field Trip to the Zoo

 Here is Bailey's cute new teacher at the new school.  Bailey has really liked Ms. Sanders.
 I was one of the lucky parents chosen to chaperone the field trip to the zoo.
 Bailey loved being in charge of the map and decided which animal to see next.
 This monkey was very friendly.  He sat right by the glass and was people watching. :)
 I splurged and paid for my group to go on the carousel.  It was a whopping 7 dollars...and it earned me chaperone of the year (at least in my groups eyes!).
The zoo was fun, but it was even more fun having some quality time with Bailey.  I don't get to spend time without everyone else very often.

 Bailey had a rough couple of days.  She was feeling kind of down.  So I thought it would be fun to pick her up from school, go get some ice cream, and then head back to school.  It was fun to have some Bailey time!
 Our good friends next door went on an overnighter for their anniversary, and we watched their kids.  I also had 2 piano students over.  There was a total of 12 kids over for dinner.
 One of Wyatt's favorite spots.
 100th day of school...dress up like a 100 year old.  How cute are these two!?!?

 First trim, and Addison styled his hair for him. Stud!
 First tooth lost.  She was so excited that the tooth fairy was going to come visit her!!!
 Wyatt's favorite spot again.  This time, naked and with water and soap. :)
Poor Bai was sick last week.  She threw up for 2 days and missed Rodeo day and Dr. Seuss day at school. What terrible timing!
